Sear v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant was found not guilty of malicious wounding, but guilty of misdemeanor hit and run property damage under Va. Code Ann. § 46.2-894, in the Circuit Court of Fairfax, Virginia. Defendant appealed, asserting the trial court erred by convicting him of hit and run property damage because that offense was not a lesser-included offense of hit and run personal injury, and was not charged in the original indictment.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Hit and run property damage “requires proof of property damage.” Hit and run personal injury does not. The elements of proof of the two offenses are inherently different. Therefore, hit and run property damage is not a lesser included offense of hit and run personal injury.
  • A lesser included offense is an offense which is composed entirely of elements that are also elements of the greater offense. An offense is not a lesser included offense of another if each offense contains an element that the other does not.
